Question about Computers & Internet
Is it still under warranty?
Try connecting it to a different USB port on your computer.
Try connecting it to a USB port on a different computer.
If it still is not detected, then either exercise the warranty,
or disassemble the case, to find two major parts:
* a disk-drive
* a USB-to-disk-drive adapter
Disconnect the disk-drive and connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in some desktop computer, to see if it is recognized, i.e., if it was the USB-to-disk-drive adapter that has failed.
If it still is not recognized, then it is "dead". You could buy a similar disk-drive, install it into the enclosure, and thus create another external storage device.
